StrongLifts B

Squat: 5×5 @ 225 lbs.
Overhead Press: 5/4/4/5/4 @ 117.5 lbs.*
Deadlift: 1×5 @ 340 lbs.
Weighted Chinups: 5/3/3 @ BW + 2.5 lbs.**

Body Weight: 195.6 lbs.

*I tried pressing 127.5 lbs, but I felt really bad doing so. So, I dropped to the last weight at which I failed to achieve 5×5 and went for 5×5. I didn't get it, but I was kinda close. I'm trying again next time, and if I make it, I'll continue pushing for 5×5 at lighter weights instead of driving up the intensity and thus the risk of passing out. Wish me luck...

**My right shoulder really started to hurt during this. Since this pain is interfering with my bench press, I decided to take it easy on the chinups. I should have dropped the extra weight--perhaps I will do that next time.
